    Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom

    March 22 | 7:00 p.m. ET

     

    Developing students' capabilities with reasoning and sense making processes should be the primary goal of mathematics instruction. In order to achieve this goal, all math classes should provide ongoing opportunities for students to productively use these processes. In this webinar, Michael Battitsta will illustrate the nature of mathematical reasoning and sense making in prekindergarten–grade 8 by showing examples from a three-book series on Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom. With student and classroom vignettes as well as instructional tasks, learn how instruction can support students in their development of reasoning and sense making.
